I'm trying to decide ahead of time if I want to get the new iPhone this fall or buy a MacBook Air.

I currently have an iPhone 6 16gb, and a i7 laptop with 1Tb and GTX 950m graphics. Also have an iPad Air 2 64gb.

I'm not sure about getting a MacBook because I'm not sure if its utility would warrant the financial investment since I already have a good laptop.

On the other hand, I'd just be upgrading my iPhone, but the jump will give me all the features and improvements of the 6s, plus more.

Any advice guys? Thanks in advance.

I think you answered your own question with those two statements. :rolleyes:

First world problems. Asking random people on the internet what you should buy.

Why not buy what you need?
I haven't bought something nice for myself a couple of years, since getting myself an iPhone 6 and just wanted some opinions. Different people have an easier or harder time deciding between things over others.

P.S: I already budget what I need and happen to have some extra money in the jar to buy something extra for myself. If you can't make respectful replies, don't reply to threads at all.

If you have a broken PC or mac, get the MacBook Air, if you have a broken phone, get the iPhone 6
My 6 has some issues with the power button and the battery is abysmal, so I'm probably get the 7.

Then I suggest you donate the money to people that need it instead, instead of having strangers guess what you want.

Since your laptop is good, go for new iPhone. Maybe you already have the answer but you need someone to agree with you :)

Do something un-American; save your money since your two current devices are functional to your needs. If you want to spend something nice on yourself, buy a new pair of shoes.
Saving your money is not a crime. Put the money in a retirement account or a rainy-day fund.

That new phone is butt ugly with that bump on the back. Get it and you're likely to lose friends.
Those must be really shallow and superficial friends if they will dump a person because of a choice in phone. Since nearly every smart-phone purchased is wrapped in a case of some sort, the bulge really does not matter along with where the antenna bands are placed (unless you are the industrial designer working on the project).
Its really important to have some perspective on what is important and unimportant in life.
